Of course we’ll learn as we go. We don’t really have a choice if we want to live our lives with a semblance of consciousness.
But, foregoing an opportunity to prepare when we have the chance is irresponsible and, generally, foolish. In nearly every kind of work, a little bit of extra thought and preparation go a long way. We’ve all been there – that supplier who came well prepared, the interview candidate who demonstrated her thoughtfulness and the spouse who showed she cared.
There are more humans on the planet than we’d like who don’t have the luxury to take the time to prepare. So, preparation is both an opportunity and a great privilege.
And, with great privilege comes great responsibility.
Preparation is how we do small things with extraordinary love. And, that extraordinary love and care is what makes the world a better place for all of us.
